Watch out, Christie Brinkley! When the 64-year-old model attended the NYC premiere of Paris to Pittsburgh on Monday, Dec. 3, she ended up losing one of her nearly $800 Christian Louboutin heels after it sadly got stuck in one of the Lincoln Center escalators. Christie later shared a video of the embarrassing moment on Instagram and, in the clip, the star is tirelessly trying to free the expensive shoe from the halted staircase.
“My shoe is stuck… Nooo!” she yelled in the video. Though Christie appeared to be very distressed about her damaged footwear, she still found a way to laugh about the major wardrobe malfunction. Watch the video below!

OH HEEL YEAH!” she joked in the clip’s caption. “Somebody call the police… the fashion police!

It’s understandable that Christie would be upset about damaging her new Louboutins shortly after she took them out of the box. The Sports Illustrated model has been known for having a great fashion sense and passing it along to her daughters, Alexa Ray Joel, 32, and Sailor Brinkley-Cook, 20. She’s also a proud mom to her son, Jack Brinkley-Cook, 23.
In a previous interview, Sailor gushed about her mom’s stunning wardrobe and noted how much “fun” it is to go through her closet. “I just love being in her closet because it’s massive and genuinely historic,” Sailor said. “She has clothes from the ’60s, ’70s, and ’80s — the most beautiful collection of clothes —and it’s so fun to go in there!”
